Offering a completely different alternative to potato or sweet potato fries, Funnybones Foodservice has launched Yuca Fries.
Pronounced ‘You Ka’, they are made from cassava, a root vegetable native to Central and South America.
Much like potatoes, once cooked Yuca Fries form a crispy coating with a soft but more densely textured centre. Holding their crispiness well, they are described as having a delicate flavour profile that works well on their own, with a dip or served as an accompaniment to everything from burgers and chicken to fish or sandwiches.
Available in 1 x 20 x 500g packs, Yuca Fries can be fried from frozen at 180ºC and will be ready in three to four minutes.
